Original Press Release:
Rabbit-Based Control via GPRS/SMS Communications
Cell phones are not the only devices that can communicate in a GSM network - a Rabbit-based control device is also on the list. Imagine your machines notifying you when they need servicing; change settings from anywhere in the world; upload data wirelessly; send commands from one machine to another; receive vehicle location/conditions via e-mail. These are all examples that combine control with wireless GPRS/GSM communications.
Z-World's GPRS/GSM Application Kit provides all the tools necessary to sample and develop applications that combine a Rabbit-based control device with a GSM/GPRS modem. The libraries and sample programs allow for a device connected to the cellular network to send SMS (text) messages to a RabbitCore module (RCM) that can interpret messages as commands and in turn execute control functions. The RCM can also send/receive GPRS e-mail wirelessly to/from any PC, GSM device, or cell phone. The LCD/keypad module included in the GPRS/GSM Application Kit incorporates a menu system that provides for an easy interface to read or send text messages and e-mail.
The GPRS/GSM Application Kit includes Z-World's Dynamic C(TM) integrated development software with royalty-free TCP/IP stack and PPP module.

M2M is a market segment that brings together wireless and web portal service providers, modem manufacturers, middleware/application/IT infrastructure designers, and machine control manufacturers to respond to the growing need for building an end-to-end wireless implementation to link machines with their office operations. We have created the M2M Application Kit that responds to this particular market. Customers can take advantage of combining wireless communications with a wired LAN/Ethernet system for a more practical approach to M2M applications.
